Car won't start
This is a bit hard over the internet, but here are a couple ideas First off, do you know for sure the engine is not locked up for some reason? That would cause a rather solid "CLICK" and no turn over. I would think that is not very likely, but I have seen a lot so I put it out there for you. The other thing, is that many autos now use a relay to the starter. the starter itself has a big relay on it, the starter solenoid. But now many auto makers are using a relay, to energize the starter solenoid (which is as I said a relay). I would suspect this is your problem. Try to google for a starter relay for your car. To see if that is the problem, you can switch that relay with another one in the car. If it then cranks you know you found the problem. (the car may not start, because who knows, perhaps you swapped the fuel pump relay or something with the starter relay, but all you want is to see if relay was the problem). A new relay should be around 10 bucks. If this is a push button start, no key, there is a module that controls the start circuit that is why you can push the button and do not need to hold it till it starts like you do with a key. I hope this is helpful to you. Tom
